To make it even more nerdy I've decided to print the Middle Earth map to hang it on my front door (on the inside...), so I can mark on it where I am (you can easily know that with ÉowynChallenge.net, as seen in Steve's article).

 

Pack your lembas and come!

I can't access the sheet at work, so I'll look into this tonight. I just read the article again for a refresher and noticed there's no time limit. Has anyone done this with a timed goal in mind? I feel like that would produce better results.

Billy: [smiles] At the gym!

Captain Hammer: [to himself] I don't go to the gym, I'm just naturally like this...

I've been thinking about it. With my current walking routine, it would take me more than a year and a half to arrive to Mordor. I am not sure what will be harder: to take so long to arrive or to try and do it faster...

This walking challenge is really stimulating my nerdiness. I've started and album about the places I'm walking about. Currently at the Shire...

I don't know if I will find enough places similar to the story ones, but today's been a good start.

love the idea of taking similar picture along the way. Though that might get a bit scary as you walk further... :) 

I'm leaving for vacation, but when I get back, I will join you guys on your adventure.

Yeah, I have a year and a half or so to find a place with a mount Doom to picture it... Don't even dream where could I find a Cerin Amroth mound...

I'm doing a fair bit of walking at the moment - training for a four day walk...

 

Logged my last walk - I'm in the lead :)

 

Be welcome!!
